I want to clarify the following which I said on the cohousing list. Based on some responses I received in email, I think some have misunderstood. I'd said: << I think there should be a rule against amateur anthropology on the list. It's so hard not to respond to a quote like that.>> One person replied: >>No amateurs allowed?? Sortof the anti-Olympic ethic, eh? So, it's not ok to state one's opinion unless you're paid for it...hmmmm I'll send you a bill for this post :) << Another person replied: >>Umm, how 'bout a rule against *rules* like that?<< If anybody thinks I was suggesting there REALLY should be a rule on the list, I'm sorry not to have been more clear. Maybe I'm missing the joke. (The first reply clearly is a joke.) Maybe others missed my joke. I was suggesting there should be a rule to keep *ME* from filling the list with discussions on topics other than cohousing. I could really talk all day about some tangents which are brought up if I thought anybody was interested. A rule to prevent what I was doing just then. Ha ha ha. Ironic, eh. That's funny, get it? Uh, oh well, I guess you had to be there. Thos Rochester, NY
